Rethinking Number Theory is a virtual research workshop series that began in the early remote-working days of 2020. The goals of the workshop are for participants to learn new math, get to know colleagues, and have a joyful, affirming research experience. Our "professional development" sessions are meetings where we discuss ways to make our profession more equitable. In this talk, we will describe some of the structural choices that we made to ensure that we could welcome and support all participants. We will also share our reflections on why this workshop is important and what we hope to work on to keep improving it.
